Camarines Norte Rep. Josie Tallado has personally turned over a wheelchair to a senior citizen from Capalonga as part of her “Wheel of Hope” program.

Latest beneficiary of the program was Tatay Manuel Caceres, 68 years old from Purok 2, Poblacion, Capalonga.

“Napakagaan sa pakiramdam na makatulong sa ating mga nakatatanda lalo na sa kanilang kalagayan at mababanaag mo sa kanyang mga mata ang sayang nararamdaman matapos na ipagkaloob ang mumunting regalo na isang bagong wheelchair na kanyang magagamit sa pang-araw-araw,” Tallado was quoted as saying.

Tatay Manuel could not walk for 5 years now after suffering a mild stroke.

“Sa abot nang aking makakaya, hindi po ako magsasawa at hindi mapapagod makapaglingkod sa ating mga nakatatanda lalo na’t ito ay may pangangailangan,” the lawmaker said.
